On March 12th, Farmingdale Robotics students competed at the Southern NYS Championship. Team 1353V finished in fourth position out of 56 teams, making it as far as the semifinals and receiving the Innovate award, qualifying them to the World Championship in Dallas, Texas, this May.
In Dallas, Farmingdale will compete against 800 schools worldwide, all playing the game “Tipping Point,” which requires the robots to place rings on posts, carry the posts to their scoring zones, and climb a see-saw-like platform for points. A portion of the match is “autonomous,” using computer code alone to play the game.
The robotics club will learn from other teams, compete with and against robots worldwide, and Dalers will volunteer in critical positions to support STEM. Congratulations Dalers!
